Description

Lentils are a great source of protein, and the main attraction of this curried dish. (For a vegetarian meal, omit the bacon.) Here, the lentils are soaked overnight, but you can skip this step and still achieve excellent results, especially if you buy them from a store with high turnover (meaning they are fresher and more likely to become tender in the called for cooking time). This meal-in-one delivers ample flavor, thanks to curry powder and piri piri sauce, both available at ethnic food markets and many supermarkets these day.
